Nojel Eastern to visit Seton Hall

Seton Hall will receive an official visit from top-100 guard Nojel Eastern (Evanston, Ill.) this weekend.

A 6-foot-5 point guard who officially visited Michigan State, his perceived favorite, two weeks ago, Eastern has been recruited by Seton Hall for a long time now and is finally going to visit campus.

Kevin Willard and his staff have been diligent despite the long-distance recruiting relationship, having watched Nojel play twice while on Big East Midwest road trips since they offered way back in February of 2015.

Regional schools like DePaul, Purdue, Ohio State, and Michigan have also been hanging around the Meanstreets combo guard of late; the Boilermakers received a visit last August.

The Spartans have been Eastern’s 247Sports Crystal Ball runaway favorite for a bit with some speculating whether they’re recruiting him as a point guard or more of an off-ball guard/wing.

Seton Hall is recruiting the Billy Garrett Jr-like built guard along with top-ranked point guard Trevon Duval and Bishop McNamara (Md.) lead guard Jamir Moultrie, who they have swooped in late for. The staff was in Florida to watch Duval at IMG Academy on Tuesday, their second time in the Sunshine state in as many weeks.

In other recruiting news, 2018 forward Valdir Manuel (Patrick School, N.J.) was on campus Monday while the team was conducting just their second practice.
